s webinar, we will discuss the following questions in regards to web searches (and more).
* Is there the best Boolean string for every search? Which strings are right and wrong? How many strings do you need? How to alter a string that yields the wrong results? How do deal with too few or too many results? How to search for a keyword that has several meanings? Does it help to save strings and what’s the best way to do it?
Participants are encouraged to “bring” their search string to the webinar; we will have an interactive practical session at the end where we will work on enhancing those strings.
The webinar will be helpful to recruiters, sourcers, and anybody who wants to get better results in their searches. As the result of the webinar, you will be prepared to search like a pro.
The webinar comes with one month of unlimited Q&A over email.

(That should probably be a part of good manners in these things...summarize the view of the other side before you take it apart.)
He's right. Finding the right people will always be hard. Jeez, most recruiters only get it right some of the time. Finding the right people is very hard work.
At 230 calls from nothing to filled position (that's the statistic that Danny Cahill uses), it's unlikely that "the right" person is being found. It's almost always someone who is 'good enough'.
That part of recruiting is permanent. What is less permanent is the time and energy invested in getting to know complex early stage tools. There is nothing about finding the right person that inherently requires Boolean search strings. Conflating the two just confuses the question.
Boolean tools and search strings are artifacts of an overly difficult search process. As it gets less mysterious and magical, more people will do it. As more people do it (it becomes a part of the recruiter's job again), fewer people will be employed to do it.…
